The Reg

Redeems itself a lil bit.

"...Each Cell is given a GUID, a global identifier. Your PlayStation may be hosting processes that began life on a Cell on another side of the world. Remember that the architecture enables a strict, lock-down machine to be built, with access to memory tightly controlled. Since DRM is predicated on controlling uniquely-identified media to run, or not run, on a specifically-authorized piece of hardware, this allows system designers much more scope in building systems which can both restrict and track the content they play."

Will the Cell legitimize the grey market for anti-DRM chips (ie, take it out of Lik-Sang and to the mass-market)? For that matter, will Dell (et al) recently buying fully into Trusted Computing do the same?

Yup - I think anti-DRM gray markets will absolutely explode in the next 2-3 years.
